Tap, tap, tap! Five pretty, yellow baby ducklings came out.

Then the big egg started to crack. Bang, bang, bang! One big, ugly duckling came out.

然后,大的蛋也裂开了,砰砰砰!出来了一只又大又丑的小鸭子。


'That's strange,' thought Mummy Duck.

“真是怪事,”鸭妈妈想着。



Nobody wanted to play with him. 'Go away,' said his brothers and sisters. 'You're ugly!'

没人愿意跟丑小鸭一起玩,“走开”,他的哥哥姐姐们对他说,“你长得太丑了!”


The ugly duckling was sad. So he went to find some new friends.

'Go away!' said the pig.

No one wanted to be his friend. It started to get cold. It started to snow!

The ugly duckling found an empty barn and lived there. He was cold, sad and alone.

Then spring came. The ugly duckling left the barn and went back to the pond.

He was very thirsty and put his beak into the water. He saw a beautiful, white bird! 'Wow!' he said. 'Who's that?'

“你不再是丑小鸭了,你是一只美丽的白天鹅,像我一样。你想做我的朋友吗?”


'Yes,' he smiled.

“好啊!”丑小鸭笑着说。


All the other animals watched as the two swans flew away, friends forever.

其他的动物都惊呆了,看着这两只美丽的天鹅展翅高飞。而丑小鸭和那一只天鹅,也成了永远的朋友。
